Juno Beach Night Hunt
Laurie and I hosted a night hunt on Saturday Feb 11, 2017 at
Juno Beach fishing pier at 5:30 pm.
The weather was perfect, cool but not cold, a full moon
rose shortly after sunset with clear skies.
We arrived early that afternoon and the beach was very
crowded with beach goers, we could not plant any coins till
they left. Therefore we started an open wild daylight hunt
for the members.
As it got dark they returned to the meeting spot and table
for snacks and beverages. While they were enjoying the
goodies, Laurie and new member Tripp Cioci's mother left
to plant hundreds of coins on the south side of the pier.
The hour long hunt began just as the full moon was rising
into a clear sky. The cool breeze was most refreshing and
the members were off and digging it.
The list is as follows.....

Scavenger Hunt
We’re having a scavenger hunt that
will end on the April 13th meeting.
Check out the list of required items on
page 7.
All items found will count toward the
most found, and the variety to win.
Yes, this is a “help clean up the trash
on the beach” hunt!

It was a most enjoyable evening. Most of the coins
were found. Tripp found a nice necklace with a cross
and a diamond stud ear ring.
Dave and Vice President Sue Chonoles invited Bill and
his wife along with their friend Bob. They met us at
Red Lobster and went to the club meeting. Hopefully
they will be new members.
Jacob who had joined us at the Red Lobster dinner
and was a guest, showed interest in joining.

From the Editor
Beginning with this issue of The Tinfoil Times, I will be serving as the Newsletter Editor.
I am a fairly new member to the club, and I am looking forward to meeting
all of our members. I am also pretty new at metal detecting, so I hope you
don’t mind me picking your brains from time to time.

ORIENTATION and Kellyco Quick Hunt

10:00 - COMPETITION HUNT
11:00
There will be several thousand painted tokens evenly distributed in the
marked-off area, very close to the surface (within 1"). The goal is to loam
cate and recover as many of the marked coins as possible in one hour.
Trophies and prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.
Please feel free to gather at the border prior to the hunt, but please do
not enter the area before the beginning of the hunt. Everyone will
begin at the same time and end at the same time. Remaining time will
be announced. Please do not share tokens. Once you leave the hunt
field, you cannot return. This hunt will require speed, technique, skill
and the ability to bend over and have good knees and back. This hunt
is for bragging rights as the "Best Competition Hunter".
11:15 - YOUTH HUNT (12 and under)
11:30
The smaller buccaneers among us will have an opportunity to strut their
stuff. This is a mini version of the Competition Hunt. Yes, you can obam
serve and give verbal help, but the smaller buccaneer is the only one
who can operate the magic wand (metal detector) and retrieve the tokens. Remember the primary goal is to have fun.

11:15 - THE SHOOT-OUT (PINPOINT)
12:00
This will definitely get you in the mood to pull some hair. The object is
to locate and place an X on the specific location of a coin attached to
Noon
the underside of a piece of plywood. The goal is to pinpoint the exact
center of the hidden coin's location with your metal detector. You will
have 30 seconds to make your mark. Prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd and
3rd places.
Then its break for LUNCH! 12:00 to 1:30pm
1:30 SILVER HUNT and REALE HUNT
2:30 pm
Silver coins will be randomly distributed in the field. Recover as many
as you can, and keep all that you find!!! The more that sign up, the
more coins we will put in the ground! Prize tokens will also be planted
and some will be for SPANISH REALES!
